Working more than one job at a time

Posted on June 10, 2019 at 10:03 pm

Almost all of us have to work to allow us to pay the bills. People are often having to work longer hours in order to stay afloat and with job security, always a concern for many of us, you may consider getting two or more jobs.

It may be that you want to earn money fast and cannot find a full time job that pays enough. You may decide to take two part time jobs in order to make up your wage. Some people even decide to do a full time job and then additional work at the weekend of even in the evening. This is not ideal and it may be that you are working more hours than you are supposed to. It can have a serious knock on effect on your health and wellbeing. 

When considering working two or more jobs there are some points you should consider. Some employers will state in their terms of employment that you are not allowed to work for another company without their prior permission. If they find out you are working for another company you may find yourself sacked under gross misconduct.  You may also be taxed on both jobs, or have your tax free allowance used on one job so the other job you pay tax on every penny you earn.
